There are several ways to reach Machu Picchu; you can walk up the road, take the bus – or walk the Inka trail – and in that case, you will walk down to Machu Picchu as the Inka Trail is a bit higher compared to Machu Picchu.

The Machu Picchu itself is not a very nice area as the guides an the staff itself is very unfriendly, very rude and pushing thousands of people through the ruins per day. Unfriendly people but amazing view…
